Cerebral Palsy Hip Disorders
Children with cerebral palsy may develop hip disorders over time, in which tight muscles cause the hip to be forced out of the socket. As the child ages, a dislocated hip can become very painful.
The Cerebral Palsy Program is the only pediatric interdisciplinary cerebral palsy program in Philadelphia, providing evaluations for more than 500 patients per year. We work very closely with specialists throughout the CHOP network to coordinate care for our patients.
